“Perfection”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We rented the villa for our wedding, bringing a large group of family and friends with us! We had the most amazing week, as did our guests. The villa is in a great location with stunning views and the accommodation was fantastic. Gabriele, the owner was brilliant! He was always on hand to help and offer advice on the area. The pizza night was brilliant and excellent value as were the breakfasts. Our wedding day was the most fantastic day, it was everything we had hoped for and more, we cannot begin to explain how grateful we are to Gabriele and his team for all their hard work in the organisation and planning, he made everything so much easier and stress free for us. We cannot recommend Casale de Pasquinelli highly enough, we can guarantee you will not be disappointed if you chose this as a holiday location or a wedding venue.

“A great combination of properties for a large group”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We were a group of 20 adults and children from the UK and we hired all 5 houses for 8 nights for a joint family holiday. We could have accommodated an additional 15 people in the houses quite easily.

The description and pictures of the Casale are accurate, and probably do not really do it justice. It is in a great location, an easy drive from Lucca, and the views are stunning and it is so quiet.

The owner Gabriele is a delight and he is hands on and very helpful. We had a lot of e-mail communication before we arrived, and he was very clear regarding what was to be provided. He organised our group transport from and to Pisa Airport, and also food shopping to our exact requirements to be waiting for us when we arrived. He also printed our Daily Telegraph crossword for us every day !

He also responded very positively to any suggestions we made.

We took advantage of his service of a Pizza Party on the first and last nights and an organised group breakfast for 4 mornings. All of these were excellent. We also used the Pizza Oven ourselves on one night.

The Casale is fantastic, and it is quite hard to find anything to compare it with as it has the rare benefit of 5 substantial and discrete houses, allowing a group to also have the benefit of individual privacy.

The only two things to be sure you are OK with, (which are both clear from the description) are that at least one member of your party should have a car, and the site is quite steep in parts, with many steps.

Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We rented the whole Villa for a family reunion in Tuscany. The rooms were well spaced and nicely decorated. there are several resting area with stunning views. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool and picking up fresh eggs in the morning.
The landlord was very very helpful and made excellent restaurant recommendations.

“Casale di Pasquinelli is paradise”
Reviewed 2 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Gabriele, the owner, has created the most wonderful property in the hills above Lucca. The property is stunning, beautifully appointed and maintained, and so well run. As we were driving further and further up into the hills behind Lucca wondering whether we had taken a wrong turn, passing through small towns on very narrow roads we came across the most stunning view and then realised we had arrived at the property! What a treat, and actually only 25 mins drive from Lucca. We spent a fabulous week here and can't wait to return.

“Our guests CRIED when they left! It was AMAZING!!”
Reviewed 26 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

I can’t write enough wonderful things about Casale de Pasquinelli and Gabriele. We rented the entire property (and another up the hill) site unseen for a week with 47 of our closest family and friends as we celebrated our wedding week.

When I reserved the Casale- I did it solely based on reviews from other visitors and online pictures. We are from the San Francisco Bay Area in California and didn’t have the luxury of a quick ancillary visit to make sure the atmosphere was perfect- but from all the reviews we knew it was exactly what we wanted. We were tasked with coordinating a vacation for everyone- while Gabriele was tasked with planning our wedding; he did a wonderful job! The vendors he recommended for me were all top quality, professional, trustworthy and provided a stellar experience for us.

Gabriele helped plan every single detail of my wedding (including the off-site ceremony in the Lucca Town Hall). Every single day was magical and every detail was taken care of. He helped set up group tours, transportation, catered food events, and even took care of some shopping for us to stock our kitchen.

The Casale is authentic and rustic Italy, with many modern ammenties. It is very clean, spacious and unique. Although slightly rural, which I’ve learned is normal there… It created a calmness and serenity that our guest reveled in. Although Gabriele is magical about coordinating transportation to and from the villa, it is highly recommended that you have a car or two on site for “quick” store runs… or heading to dinner.

Every single guest LOVED the Casale. It was the perfect setting for everyone to have a group vacation AND a version of their own personal vacation. So many wonderful places on the property to venture off and have your own time. People were in tears when they had to leave…. Casale de Pasquinelli was HOME to our guests. Gabriele made us feel like personal visitors into his very own home. My husband and I are committed to going back and staying at the Casale as our home base for our continued Italy travels. Gabriele is a very kind man that we trust implicitly. He constantly made sure things we perfect for us. If there was a little glitch- as you’d expect might happen when traveling with a group of 50- he always went above and beyond to correct and make it perfect.

One SUGGESTION- whether you rent out one apartment or the entire Casale- I would pay Gabriele to stock the kitchen with some basic kitchen items for your arrival (and your stay)…antipasti items, coffee, WINE, jam, bread, eggs, juice, water…. We did this and it was a nice convenience. We gave him a budget to do a store run and he made sure it was taken care of. This made for a nice, social time when our guests were just relaxing in our Casale…we had some appetizers available to offer.

Our stay could not have been any better! Thank you Gabriele!
